Arrow Forward Outposts and map edge distances

We just released to all server admins a server-side only hotfix lowering the map edge distance check when placing Forward Outposts from 200m to 10m. We kept it at 10m so there's still a check to avoid out of bounds placements, considered as exploits.

There's still a 200m check when placing FOs in the Command and Control game mode, since the Forward Outposts are the main objectives of that mode. That's the distance all defenses can be placed in relation to the FO, so we don't want to see people using the map edges as an artificial defense multiplier.

It's up to server admins to update their servers, and players don't need to do anything but join the servers like normal.

Great change, 200m was a bit much for regular AAS games.

And it's nice to see that the feedback given on these boars gets converted into fixes. R-DEVs ftw
